Some scientists are gathering billions of reproductive cells to create a sort of coral "sperm bank."

Andrea Arden's DogFun App, Zuckerberg's Facemash For Dogs?

What a difference a decade makes. Prior to Facebook being incubated in a Harvard dorm room, Mark Zuckerberg was tinkering with a lesser known website, he called: "Facemash." Considered his version of the college game, "Hot or Not?" -- the website used photos compiled from the online 'facebooks' of nine Harvard dormitories, placing two co-ed head shots next to each other while asking users to choose the “hotter” person. Flash forward ten years, and Andrea Arden's DogFun app for pet owners asks a similar question regarding their pets.

Tie A Yellow Ribbon 'Round Your Beloved Dog's Leash

As most dog owners know, some dogs just need their space -- whether it is because they are shy or afraid, or because they are recovering from illness or injury. The Yellow Dog Project is spreading the word and trying to create a safer environment for these dogs by getting their owners to tie a yellow ribbon around the leash so that others know to be careful of approaching the dog and to keep their dogs away.

What's Up With Downton Abbey's 'Hound's Bum Abbey Time'?

Matthew Crawley's character on Downton Abbey played by Dan Stevens tweets "Hound's Bum Abbey Time," to his Twitter followers, at the beginning of each episode aired in the UK. Only die-hard DA fans would have any inkling as to what that reference means? Similarly, most folks aren't aware that the iconic dog referred to in that tweet is just ONE of a several canines who reside at Downton Abbey (and the film location of Highclere Castle). But what are his or her names and why is so little known about the Labrador(s) who open each episode (bum-side first)?
